If we go the Java 1.2 route, then it wouldn't be necessary.  If we stay with
Java 1.1, then we are forced to do something like that.  It might even be able
to stand on it's own and be used outside of the context of Cocoon.

Anyway, I am still +1 on Java 1.2+ regardless.  If we can keep one coherent
cocoon.jar file, then I am +1 on that.

BTW, would XSP be able to stand on it's own outside the context of Cocoon?
If it could be easily adapted to work in other publishing contexts, then the code
I write as a user of XSP would be more portable.  Of course, If we can get JSP
to become like XSP then the whole need for the new standard is gone, and it
can be merged with JSP.  It's just a thought.
